IMO he was the underground king of hip hop of NYC in the mid 1990s. Despite poor productions, his first album's lyrics for me were better than one of my all time favorite albums, Illmatic.

Big L's first and only album- Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous. Check it out
Even his posthumous album was great

Question for the people here. Better lyricist: Notorious BIG or Big L?

I'm not that big of a fan of Biggie personally.

I have biggie higher up on my favourites list. but if we're just talking about raw lyrical skill than i would say L > B.I.G

Alright.

By the way this is a question for your thread. What's your rap era preference?

I love the gritty NYC late 90s rap (I would say between 1994-1998). For me East Coast does it. I do like West Coast Hip Hop from the early 1990s too.

agreed, although I feel he was trying to be different in his second album, I liked his first one way better. One of the "Grittiest" albums I've ever heard. Central Harlem was incredibly dangerous back then.

Having lived in Philadelphia for a few years another good song:

Parts of Philadelphia is crime infested for sure. I've also seen people people rap on the sidewalk in some neighborhoods. Graffiti murals are mad common in Philly too.
